When it comes to getting the most out of your disinfecting products, there are a few things you definitely need. Cleaning a kennel is hard work, and if you have several kennels to clean, or several rooms and spaces to keep up with, going through multiple steps can be exhausting. You can’t get the entire job done unless you clean, disinfect, and freshen up the area afterward.
There are now products that offer you multiple benefits with one, simple step. The best part is, these products are strong and effective at killing dangerous bacteria and viruses, and they’re safe enough to use in areas where animals won’t be in danger if they’re exposed to the odor or air. The key to getting the best out of your disinfectants is to make sure you don’t just disinfect, but you clean the area before, and deodorize the area afterward. That’s where these one-step products come in handy. They get the tough job done without causing you to repeat three steps over the same areas.
What It Takes to Do The Job
To properly clean and disinfect your kennels, there are several things you need to do. The surfaces and surrounding areas need to be cleaned, but cleaning products don’t exactly disinfect on contact. Cleaning will physically lift dirt and germs from surfaces, as well as wipe away impurities that could be bad for the animals. Cleaners don’t kill the germs, but they eliminate some of them, which cuts back on how much gets spread.
You also need to use a kennel disinfectant. Since cleaning products don’t kill germs, you must include a product that does. Disinfectants are required by law to pass a series of tests proving they can accomplish what they claim, or they can’t have the words “disinfectant” anywhere on their products. Kennel disinfectants will destroy the germs, viruses, and bacteria, on contact, which eliminates more than cleaning alone. But, even the best kennel disinfectants, like KennelSol, can’t kill literally every germ, which is why you need to clean and disinfect to get the best out of both products.
The last step is deodorizing the area. Some kennel cleaners and kennel disinfectants can be potent and leave behind an intense odor. Products that deodorize the area after it’s cleaned will help cut down on some of that smell, leaving behind a fresher aroma instead.
It Doesn’t Have to Be Hard Work
If you have a large surface area to cover, thinking about going through three steps every time may seem overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be, because some products like KennelSol can accomplish all three jobs with one solution. That’s because it’s a germicidal cleaner, disinfectant, and deodorizer that’s specifically formulated for animal care facilities. These products are powerful enough to kill viruses and bacteria, but they’re made to be safe for our pets and for us. The third part of the product leaves behind a fresh scent thanks to its deodorizing molecules. That way, you and the animals don’t have to breathe in those harsh odors after cleaning. These deodorizers won’t just cover up the smells and stains that are left behind. The cleaners and disinfectants will remove the source of the odor or stain and the deodorizer will settle in to where the problem used to be, leaving behind a fresh, pleasant smell. The best part about all-in-one disinfectants is that they help eliminate repeating three steps over and over again, each time you clean.
Get The Job Done
It’s easy to cut corners and it’s just as easy to find products that cut corners, as well. The most important thing is to find a product that hasn’t cut any corners, and is not only tough but safe and gentle so you can use it in any kennels and in any situation. You no longer need to worry about exposing animals or yourself to harsh fumes from toxic chemicals. If you follow the steps, you can accomplish the entire job with just one product, without taking any shortcuts. In the end, you’ll feel better knowing you’re protecting your animals from harmful bacteria and viruses and keeping them safe from diseases like picornavirus and parvovirus. That’s more important than ever, that’s why it’s so important to find a product that works and that you can trust to be effective and safe.
